Bus tour marks Imagination Library anniversary

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- The Governor's Books from Birth Foundation is celebrating the 10th anniversary of Dolly Parton's Imagination Library in Tennessee with a statewide bus tour.

The Imagination Library has mailed over 20 million free books to Tennessee children since it began. The Books from Birth Foundation helps support the program by matching the funds raised by local groups.

The 50-county bus tour will include recognizing the work of volunteers and donors, signing children up for free books and building community support for the program. The Books from Birth Foundation will provide reading-themed giveaways for children at each stop.

The tour begins on August 26 in Johnson County and ends at the Tennessee State Capitol in Nashville on September 30.
